Title: Why Harrison

Just a random question about design choices, but why did you use Harrison Ford as a model for King Graham's face?

That was a design art call right there. I will make sure to pass this up to our Art Director and hopefully he'll be able to provide you an answer as soon as he can :)

According to our Art Director, Richard Flores:

Art based Character Design with real life actors, in order to bring 3D life to 2D characters they couldn't base them on pixel figures. Eventually every single character was given "an actor or an actress" that they would believe it would match their description or what they believe should be their physical description.

As in why Harrison Ford for Graham, he mentioned It was the right fit. "Harrison Ford has become a very good fatherly figure" he said, and as given the opportunity art department agreed and it was picked up from design to the final model. They were happy with the results and they believed this outcome worked well.

Hope that satisfied your curiosity :)
